Fantastical – Calendar apps are usually pretty boring. You log an appointment in it and then you never think about the app again. Fantastical is here to bring a little bit of flavor and awesomeness to your drab calendar app. Fantastical allows you to create events instantly via natural language input. One of the great things is that the app works perfectly with iCal, Entourage, and Outlook so you don’t have to change over to a new calendar system, it even recognizes event locations and sends invites directly from your Address Book.
Camtasia – If you’re not a fan of iMovie but don’t want the complexity of Final Cut Pro X, you should try using this great video tool. TechSmith’s Camtasia for Mac gives you flexible recording options, professional yet easy-to-use editing tools, plus web and mobile sharing capabilities so you can show incredible video screencasts to the world.
System requirement: Intel-based Mac, OS X 10.4 or later, 1GB of RAM.
CleanMyMac – Hard drive space is a valuable commodity, especially if you’re totting around the new MacBook Air with a 64GB or 128GB harddrive. MacPaw’s CleanMyMac safely and thoroughly cleans unneeded files, system junk and application leftovers from your computer. It’s the easy-to-use yet full-featured cleaner and maintenance solution that your Mac needs to stay clean and run efficiently.
HoudahSpot- Don’t get me wrong, Spotlight is great, if it weren’t then Microsoft wouldn’t be putting their version of it in Windows 8. However, sometimes navigating through Spotlight and finding the right files that you need can be tedious when you’re swimming in a sea of files and can’t figure out how to fine tune your Spotlighting abilities. Houdah Software’s HoudahSpot is a powerful and efficient search utility that unleashes the power of Spotlight. HoudahSpot makes it easy to quickly find, browse and tag your files.
MacHider – We’re not suggesting that you might have some files on your Mac that you’d like to keep hidden from certain private eyes. That’s for you to decide. But should you need to keep some sensitive information private this is the app you need to keep the process simple but efficient. MacPaw’s innovative MacHider makes sure your personal files and folders are hidden and your passwords are protected and stored in a safe place. Keep confidential information away from third parties!
DiscLabel – Nothing says, “I actually care about the content on this CD that I’m giving to you,” more than a fancy disc label on top of said CD. Smile Software’s DiscLabel lets you create, print and share beautiful CD, DVD labels and case inserts. It even comes with a wide variety of professionally-designed templates perfect for business and home use.
EnSoul – Did you see all the awesome new wallpapers that came out with the iPhone 4S? Oh wait, there weren’t any. Hey Apple, what gives? It’s ok though, because we have an app for that. The Ensoul app from MacPaw lets you truly customize your iPhone! Crop and resize contact photos, create custom wallpapers, style and edit photos and much more – all in just minutes!
Audio Converter Pro – There’s nothing more painful than getting stuck with your favorite band’s album formated in .flac, or heaven forbid .wma. Both of which require some tinkering to get to play in iTunes. Luckily there’s some great apps out there to manage your audio conversions, and Audio Converter Pro is the best on the market.

Enigmo 2 - There aren’t many games that can entice me to waste a few hours of my life because so few of them nowadays involve something other than mindlessly killing bad guys or sling-shooting birds. Enigmo 2 is an exception to many of the bland games on the market because it combines critical-thinking and problem solving skills with great graphics. Pangea has taken their classic puzzle game to another dimension with many more complex environments and new devices. Enigmo 2 includes a built-in level editor that lets you create your own games to share or post worldwide. The great thing about Enigmo 2 is that it’s a game you can load up and play for a few minutes, or get lost in it for hours.
